The DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is an American media franchise and shared universe centered on a series of superhero films and a television series produced by DC Studios and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is based on characters that appear in American comic books published by DC Comics. The DCEU also includes comic books, short films, novels, and video games. Like the original DC Universe in comic books, the DCEU is established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters.

Warner Bros. began trying to bring various DC Comics superheroes together in films in 2002, when Wolfgang Petersen was to direct a crossover of the Superman and Batman film franchises. A planned Justice League film was put on hold in 2008. Initial universe plans were scrapped after the critical and commercial disappointment of the 2011 film Green Lantern.

Warner Bros. finally established its shared universe with the 2013 film Man of Steel, a reboot of the Superman film series, and 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which also served as a reboot of the Batman film series. This was followed by 13 films and Peacemaker, a television series for Max. The DCEU's 15th and final film, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, was released on December 22, 2023.

The DCEU is the eighth-highest-grossing film franchise and the fourth-highest-grossing superhero film franchise, having grossed more than $7 billion at the global box office. The highest-grossing DC Comics-based film is Aquaman (2018), which earned more than $1.15 billion worldwide. However, nine of the 15 theatrically released films failed to break even theatrically, being considered box-office bombs. Reception to the franchise was generally mixed among critics and fans.

A new, rebooted franchise of films and television series, DC Universe (DCU), is planned by James Gunn and Peter Safran, who were appointed DC Studios' co-chairmen and co-CEOs in a late-2022 restructuring. Certain DCEU characters, such as Peacemaker, Amanda Waller and Blue Beetle, will be transitioned to the DCU, while the second season of Peacemaker will take place in the new universe.

Etymology

Upon announcement of the film series, the universe was commonly called the "DC Cinematic Universe" (DCCU) by fans and the media, in keeping with the naming convention of the already established Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).[1][2][3] Keith Staskiewicz, writing for Entertainment Weekly, jokingly coined the term "DC Extended Universe" (DCEU) in an article about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on July 1, 2015.[4][5] This term and the abbreviation DCEU quickly spread among the press and fans who took it as the official name of the franchise over the following years.[6][7] According to Vulture writer Abraham Riesman, DC confirmed to him in September 2017 that the term was not used internally and they did not consider it official.[5]

In 2016, as part of DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, both Geoff Johns and Kevin Smith referred to the franchise's name as being the "Justice League Universe".[8] During the DC Films panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, a video banner displayed the words "Welcome to the Worlds of DC", after showcasing some upcoming films. As a result, some media outlets interpreted this as DC officially naming their shared film universe as the "Worlds of DC".[9][10] However, in March 2020, Jim Lee referred to the franchise as the DC Extended Universe at C2E2.[11] The franchise was officially titled DC Extended Universe when the WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max launched the following May.[12]

Following the appointment of Peter Safran and James Gunn as heads of DC Studios, Warner Bros. Discovery (created from the merger between WarnerMedia and Discovery, Inc.) referred to DC's film and television series as part of the "DC Universe" (DCU), which some media outlets interpreted as a rebranding of the DCEU.[13]

Development and history

Main article: Development of the DC Extended Universe

In 2002, Wolfgang Petersen was set to direct a Batman vs. Superman film from a script by Akiva Goldsman,[14] but the project was shelved by Warner Bros. to focus on individual Superman and Batman projects.[15][16] In 2008, a planned Justice League film directed by George Miller and titled Justice League: Mortal was placed on indefinite hold after it failed to secure tax breaks for filming in Australia.[17][18] Man of Steel, a reboot of the Superman film series released in 2013,[19] was intended to launch a shared universe if successful.[20][21] Following the film's release, Warner Bros. announced a follow-up entitled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), establishing the DCEU.[22][23] A slate of 11 DCEU films were then announced in 2014.[24]

In 2016, Warner Bros. established DC Films after Batman v Superman did not meet Warner Bros.' box office expectations and received negative responses from fans and critics for its dark tone. The division, led by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, was to oversee production and form a cohesive creative direction for the DCEU.[25][26][27] After the failure of Justice League (2017), Johns and Berg were replaced by Walter Hamada in 2018.[28] The DCEU expanded to television with the release of Peacemaker (2022–present) on HBO Max.[29]

Discovery Inc. completed its acquisition of DC and Warner Bros. parent company WarnerMedia in 2022, forming a new company named Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) with David Zaslav as CEO. Zaslav sought to overhaul the DCEU, and began searching for a creative leader akin to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to lead DC's film and television projects.[30] James Gunn and Peter Safran were subsequently announced as the co-chairmen and CEOs of DC Studios, the successor to DC Films.[31] In 2023, the duo unveiled their slate of ten DC projects which were to be part of the DC Universe (DCU), a soft reboot and spiritual successor to the DCEU.[32]

Man of Steel (2013)

Main article: Man of Steel (film)

Zack Snyder, the director of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and co-story writer/director of Justice League

Kal-El / Clark Kent, who arrived on Earth years ago as an infant from Krypton, struggles with why he was sent to Earth. Raised by his adoptive parents, Jonathan and Martha Kent, Clark adopts the persona "Superman", and learns if his abilities are meant to maintain peace or conquer the world.[38]

During story discussions for The Dark Knight Rises (2012), David S. Goyer told Christopher Nolan his idea regarding how to present Superman in a modern context.[39] Impressed with Goyer's concept, Nolan pitched the idea to the studio,[40] who hired Nolan to produce and Goyer to write based on the financial and critical success of The Dark Knight (2008).[41][42] In October 2010, Zack Snyder was hired to direct the film,[43] and Henry Cavill was cast as Clark Kent / Superman in January 2011.[44] Principal photography began in August 2011.[45] Man of Steel was released in North America on June 14, 2013.[46]

By June 2013, Warner Bros. were fast-tracking a sequel to Man of Steel, with Snyder and Goyer returning as director and writer, respectively.[48] Nolan was involved in an advisory role as executive producer.[49] The sequel included Batman in a main role, and serves as a reboot of the Batman film series.[22][23] Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne reprised their Man of Steel roles,[50] while Ben Affleck was cast as Bruce Wayne / Batman.[51] Chris Terrio was hired to rewrite Goyer's script.[52] Originally scheduled to be released in July 2015, the release date was changed to May 6, 2016, to give the filmmakers "time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story".[53] The film's title was revealed to be Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.[54] Initial filming occurred on October 19, 2013, at East Los Angeles College,[55] before full principal photography began in May 2014 and concluded that December.[56][57] Production took place in Detroit, Illinois, New Mexico, Africa and the South Pacific.[56][58] After another date change, the film was released in North America on March 25, 2016.[59]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set 18 months after the events of Man of Steel.[60] The film introduces Gal Gadot as Diana Prince / Wonder Woman,[61] Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / The Flash,[62] Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry / Aquaman,[50] Ray Fisher as Victor Stone / Cyborg,[63] and Joe Morton as Dr. Silas Stone.[64] Steppenwolf, who serves as the main antagonist in Justice League (2017), was introduced through a brief scene not included in the film's theatrical release but instead revealed online by Warner Bros. on March 28,[65] before being included in the Ultimate Edition home video release.[66]

Studios, Leavesden in England, as well as locations around London and in Iceland.[91][92] In May 2017, Snyder stepped down from his duties on the film due to his daughter's death; Joss Whedon filled his position on post-production, with additional scenes being written and directed by him.[93] Though Whedon was not officially credited for his role as post-production director, he completed enough additional work for a screenwriting credit on the film.[94] Justice League was released worldwide on November 17, 2017.[91]

Reprising their roles from previous films are Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta, Robin Wright as Antiope, and Joe Morton as Silas Stone.[88][89][90] Justice League also introduces J.

Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021)

Main article: Zack Snyder's Justice League

The divisive reaction to the theatrical cut of Justice League, with Snyder leaving directorial duties and the final cut of the film in the hands of Whedon, led to a fan-driven campaign for a "Snyder Cut" of the film. Arguments were made that Snyder's vision would be more cohesive to the previous films.[99] In March 2019, Snyder confirmed his original cut does exist, and stated that it was up to Warner Bros. to release it.[100] Warner Bros. remained silent regarding the matter, though Variety reported in November that Warner Bros. was unlikely to release Snyder's version of Justice League, with one studio insider describing it as "a pipe dream".[101] Snyder announced in May 2020 that HBO Max would be releasing his cut of Justice League on their service on March 18, 2021.[102] Initially conceived as a four-part miniseries, it was ultimately released as a four-hour film,[103] twice the length of the theatrical version.[104] Snyder stated this version is intended to not affect the future of the DCEU continuity, but that it takes place in a slightly alternate universe.[105] The new cut cost an estimated $70 million to complete, primarily for visual effects and additional photography.[106] Some actors returned to their roles for the additional photography.[107][108] Work on the cut was completed in January 2021.[109]

Characters in the film who did not appear in the theatrical version include the Joker (with Jared Leto reprising the role from Suicide Squad), General Swanwick / Martian Manhunter (with Harry Lennix reprising the role from Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice),[110][111] Darkseid (portrayed by Ray Porter),[112] DeSaad (portrayed by Peter Guinness),[113] Nuidis Vulko (portrayed by Willem Dafoe),[114] Iris West (portrayed by Kiersey Clemons),[115] Ryan Choi (portrayed by Zheng Kai),[116] a Green Lantern, as well as Granny Goodness.[117]

Aquaman is set after the events of Justice League, though critics have noticed numerous inconsistencies between the two theatrically released films.[126] Furthermore, Momoa claimed that the film takes place after "Zack's cut", with the ending of that version of the film directly tying into the events of Aquaman.[127] Heard reprises her role as Mera from Justice League,[123] while Dafoe is introduced as Nuidis Vulko.[128]

The Flash explores the multiverse concept using the Speed Force and features multiple superheroes,[235][236] including Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne / Batman (reprising his role from the 1989 film Batman and its 1992 sequel Batman Returns)[237][238] and Sasha Calle as Supergirl.[239] Ben Affleck also reprises his role as the DCEU version of Bruce Wayne / Batman.[238] The film also "restarts" the DCEU, according to Barbara Muschietti.[236] Michael Shannon and Antje Traue reprise their roles as General Zod and Faora-Ul, respectively, from Man of Steel,[240] with Ron Livingston replacing Billy Crudup in the role of Henry Allen, Barry's father, who appeared in Justice League and its director's cut,[241][242] and Kiersey Clemons returning as Iris West from the latter cut.[243]

In January 2023, co-CEOs of DC Studios James Gunn and Peter Safran stated that The Flash will "reset" the DC Universe and lead right into the events of Blue Beetle, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, and their future slate of films given the subtitle of: "Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters".[244][217] Gunn later explained that The Flash will change some aspects and characters, but not every aspect of the franchise that came before.[245]

Blue Beetle (2023)

Main article: Blue Beetle (film)

After Jaime Reyes graduates from college and returns to his hometown Palmera City, he is chosen to become a symbiotic host to the Scarab, an ancient alien biotechnological relic that grants him a powerful exoskeleton armor, turning him into the superhero Blue Beetle.

In November 2018, a film centered on the Jaime Reyes incarnation of Blue Beetle was in development, with a script written by Gareth Dunnet-Alcocer.[246] By February 2021, Angel Manuel Soto signed on as director,[247] and Xolo Maridueña was cast as the titular character in August.[248] John Rickard and Zev Foreman serve as producers.[249] Principal photography commenced in May in Atlanta, and wrapped on July 18, 2022, in Puerto Rico.[250][251] Initially developed as an HBO Max exclusive film,[252] Blue Beetle was later changed to a theatrical release, and was released on August 18, 2023.[253]

In January 2023, co-CEOs of DC Studios James Gunn and Peter Safran stated that Blue Beetle directly follows the events of The Flash,[217] where much of the franchise will be "reset" in such a way that Blue Beetle will be "totally disconnected (from everything that came before) and can be a part of the DCU".[244][245]

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023)

Main article: Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Several years after the events of the first film, Arthur Curry / Aquaman is forced to protect Atlantis and his loved ones from devastation after an ancient power is unleashed by David Kane / Black Manta obtaining the cursed Black Trident. To achieve this, he will have to seek help from an unlikely ally, his brother Orm.

In January 2019, Warner Bros. confirmed development of an Aquaman sequel, with intentions for James Wan to return as director.[254] In addition to starring, Momoa has a larger creative role in the sequel; together with his writing partner Thomas Pa'a Sibbett,[255] he pitched their idea for the sequel to Warner Bros. and co-wrote the first story treatment.[256][257][258] In February, David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick signed on as screenwriter; he completed the script alongside Wan.[259][256] Producer Peter Safran said that the film will explore the other Seven Kingdoms of Atlantis.[260] The title was announced as Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.[261] Filming occurred from June 2021 to January 2022 in the United Kingdom, Hawaii and Los Angeles.[262][263] Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was released on December 22, 2023.[264]

In January 2023, co-CEOs of DC Studios James Gunn and Peter Safran stated that Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom will take place following the "reset" of the timeline of the DC film by The Flash, and that it will be directly followed by the slate of projects given the subtitle of: "Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters",[244][217][245] mentioning the "true start" to occur in 2025.[265]

Peacemaker (2022)

Main article: Peacemaker (TV series)

Task Force X member Christopher Smith / Peacemaker is sent on a black-ops mission to target "butterflies", individuals possessed by parasitic, insect-like creatures invading the human race.[267]

By September 2020, a television series spin-off of The Suicide Squad centered on Peacemaker was in development for HBO Max. James Gunn served as an executive producer alongside Peter Safran, wrote its eight episodes and directed several of them.[29] John Cena reprises his role as Peacemaker from the film.[29] Filming began in Vancouver, Canada in January 2021 and concluded that July.[268][269] The first three episodes of Peacemaker were released on January 13, 2022, with subsequent episodes releasing weekly until February 17.[270] Soon after the series ended, the series was renewed for a second season, with Gunn set to write and direct every episode.[266]

The first season of Peacemaker is set five months after the events of The Suicide Squad,[271] with Steve Agee and Jennifer Holland reprising their respective roles as John Economos and Emilia Harcourt from that film.[272][273] Viola Davis,[274] Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller also make uncredited appearances as their respective DCEU roles of Amanda Waller, Arthur Curry / Aquaman, and Barry Allen / Flash, with Superman and Wonder Woman also appearing portrayed by stand-ins, with their faces obscured by the darkness. The series contains references to the wider DC universe, including confirmation that Bat-Mite, Doll Man, Matter-Eater Lad, Kite Man, and Green Arrow exist in the DCEU.[275] Additionally, a newspaper headline detailing the Intergang can be briefly seen, ahead of their debut in Black Adam.[276]

After the second season was ordered following the positive reactions garnered by the series, with the show's creator James Gunn confirmed to write and direct all planned episodes, and John Cena set to reprise the title role,[266] Gunn stated that the new season would explore the greater ramifications from the aftermath of the first season's events.[277] Following the surprise cancellation of the HBO Max film Batgirl in August 2022, Gunn reaffirmed that Peacemaker's second season was "safe" and would continue development.[278] Later in the same month he stated that filming was scheduled to begin in 2023,[279] but in January 2023 Gunn said that the second season was delayed as he was busy working on other projects.[280]

Canceled and reworked projects

Over the years, many projects that were at one point supposed to be part of the DCEU have either been moved into a different continuity, outright canceled, or unreleased. Following the end of the DCEU and reboot into the DCU, various projects that were in development have been shelved though they may be repurposed for the new continuity:

Expanded setting

Further information: List of DC Multiverse worlds

In October 2014, Geoff Johns explained that DC's approach to their films and television series would be different from Marvel Studios' cinematic universe, stating that their film universe and TV universes would be kept separate within a multiverse to allow "everyone to make the best possible product, to tell the best story, to do the best world".[445] This divide lasted until January 2020, when the DCEU was retroactively established to have connections to The CW's Arrowverse continuity via an expansion of the multiverse concept, during Part 4 of the "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover. Ezra Miller reprised their role as Barry Allen in a cameo appearance alongside Grant Gustin's version of the character. During their conversation, Miller's Barry gets the idea to call himself "The Flash" from his alternate self and mentions "Victor".[446] Despite their cameo, the episode did not confirm the designated Earth for the DCEU characters.[447][448]

Miller's cameo opened up more possibilities for crossovers between DC films and the Arrowverse. President of DC Films, Walter Hamada, revealed that prior to "Crisis on Infinite Earths", DC had been structured in a way that the television division had to clear the use of characters with the film division. Now, the company could "really lean into this idea of [the multiverse] and acknowledge the fact there can be a Flash on TV and one in the movies, and you don't have to pick one or the other, and they both exist in this multiverse".[449] Arrowverse creator and executive producer Greg Berlanti agreed, feeling that "moving forward, there's more opportunity to do more things like this",[450] and was open to more film characters appearing in the Arrowverse.[449]

In August 2020, Hamada announced plans to develop a multiverse inspired by the comics. In doing so, the studio also stated that all past, present, and future projects are a part of the same unified multiverse.[298][238][366] The Flash director Andy Muschietti further explained that all previous adaptations of DC Comics were a part of the multiverse: "...all the cinematic iterations that we've seen before are valid... all that you've seen exists, and everything that you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse".[238][366] In 2023, the DCEU version of Shazam made a cameo appearance through archival footage in the Titans season 4 episode "Dude, Where's My Gar?".[451]

Timeline

In the DCEU, the events of the films rarely explicitly make their exact years known.[452] Man of Steel takes place after the events of Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984, which are set in 1918 and 1984, respectively. Wonder Woman also has bookend scenes set in the present after the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The events of Batman v Superman occur 18 months after the events of Man of Steel, which follows the consequences and the emergence of aliens and metahumans such as Superman.[60] The film concludes with the death of Superman, which is emphasized in Suicide Squad and Justice League, taking place approximately one and two years later, respectively.[453]

Jason Momoa confirmed that Aquaman takes place right after Zack Snyder's Justice League.[127] Aquaman is followed by Shazam!, which occurs during the Christmas season of 2018.[454] Shazam! Fury of the Gods is set about two years after its predecessor.[455] The events of Birds of Prey are set in 2020,[158] followed by The Suicide Squad, confirmed to take place in 2021.[456] Peacemaker is set five months after the events of The Suicide Squad.[271] Black Adam is confirmed to take place after Justice League.[457]

Reboot

Main article: DC Universe (franchise)

In January 2023, Gunn and Safran announced the initial ten installments for the DC Universe, which make up a portion of the slate subtitled "Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters". They included the films Superman: Legacy (2025), The Authority, The Brave and the Bold, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow and Swamp Thing, as well as the television series Waller, Creature Commandos, Lanterns, Paradise Lost, and Booster Gold. The duo were open to DCEU actors such as Miller, Gadot, Momoa and Levi reprising their respective roles,[32] though Gunn clarified that Superman: Legacy would serve as the start of the new continuity, with the DCU being able to change events from the DCEU, with the DCEU properties serving "like a rough memory of what happens in the DCU".[620] The Flash film would be used to reset some aspects of the universe heading into the DCU.[245] In October 2023, Variety reported that that no cast members from Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, or Justice League would reprise their roles in the DCU.[325]
